1859 Canada one cent missing date digit

Post by stephencacfa » Fri Apr 24, 2020 12:18 pm

Hello All,

I am the executor of my Uncle's estate. He has a small collection of Canadian coins, including this one that he had in a separate envelope with the words "1859 one cent missing 8" written on the outside. Can anyone offer an assessment as to whether the missing digit might make this coin worth more than the usual few dollars for what is a clearly well circulated coin?

I have attached two pictures of the coin for your consideration.

Many thanks,

Hello Troubadour. Thanks for your reply. I tried attaching the jpg files but the website is looking for a URL not a file. Can you suggest a solution?
